As a sympathetic show of support, I have deleted my avatar.
No disrespect intended to anyone, least of all to Charles, who is like the redneck, backhoe drivin' brother I never had, but I am sick to death of avatars and the agony they cause. Let's get back to Grumble basics: dog fart stories and sexist jokes.
Let's be clear about this, fellow Grumblers. Avatars have caused me no agony personally and very little inconvenience. And it is never a pain to share an IM chat or get an email from any of you.
But I've noticed that quite a few avatar posts have the little fire-breathing message icon attached. I think framer provided the avatars as a fun thing. When they cease to be fun, it's time to move on to something that is.
BTW, I hope no one misunderstands my use of the term "redneck" in the earlier post. I realize it's not always a complimentary term but, in this case at least, it is a term of endearment. Since there is plenty of opportunity for confusion, I think I'll avoid using it in the future, at least on The Grumble.
Maybe my new signature will borrow from Sue May's - something like "Warping The Grumble One Forum At-A-Time."
Thanks, Deb. Just wanted to be sure I could do it. After dealing in Gigabits and Terrabits for 30 years, I felt rather worthless 'cause I couldn't get the darn thing to work.
Think I'll turn it off now. Just wanted to satisfy myself that I COULD figure it out.
Thanks for letting me know....
